Start 'Em Early

Bedtime last night. Iain demands a book. I say,

"How about I read to you from my David Halberstam book? We could read about McCarthy, or about the Beats, or about the Korean War!"


Iain: "How about Goodnight Moon?"

You know what you should get Iain (maybe when he's a little bit older)? It's a series of historical biographies for kids called ValueTales. Don't be put off by the series title - it's not pushing anything religious. I read a bunch of them when I was a kid and they kindled my love for history. I don't think they're still in print, but you might be able to find them used. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Value-Tales-values-A-H/lm/28WHZX7SRTKWP
